In Regards to Suzuki...

I recently purchased an acoustic guitar: Suzuki to be exact. The price was reasonable, and I have been told the retail value is rather nice. All answers I've gotten have been a large amount of bureaucratic, well, you know. If anyone has any information on Suzuki acoustics that I can use, please e-mail me. I am fairly ignorant in the field of guitars.

Speaker wiring and other good info to know.

Just thought I'd post a site that has a lot of good info on speaker construction and wiring, how to figure ohms and build lighting systems are here too.

Nine string guitar

Dear GuitarMaster,
Thought this might interest your newsletter readers:

Whilst 12 string guitars have a beautiful sound thay may be difficult to play on some models compared to a standard guitar due to the extra six strings. A compromise is to remove the bottom three octave strings: E A D, to leave nine strings on the guitar. This facilitates easier playing whilst still maintaining a "chiming" sound and a full bass register. Do try it, you might like it.

You can read more tips like this at:

Best wishes,
Bob

Re: Nine string guitar

With all respect to Bob, I have to say that the whole thing about the 12 string sound is in the octave pairs. Strung as Bob suggests, you only end up with one octave pair (G). Another common variation is to take off the TOP 3 secondary strings.

I like trying all kinds of configurations. Tuning a full tone low ( D G C F A D) is quite common and you can even get an octave on the second course (A) this way.
With good picking technique you can hit just the string you want without its pair, and having the lower of each pair on the opposite side to standard gives the bass to the (downstroking) thumb and the treble to the (upstroking) fingers. You need the nut and bridge remodelled of course.
Open tunings really rock on 12 strings. Slide on a specially set up 12 is also very cool for pickers.
Some have tuned the pairs in fifths and other harmonies, but it's pretty weird and limiting.

Re: Nine string guitar

Thank you dGaryFan,
I appreciate your comments and will try them out.
Best wishes,
Bob.

Need advice on pick-up and preamp for 12 string.

I just recently bought a Takamine F400S 12 string guitar and I would like to put a pick-up and preamp in it. Does anyone have and suggestions or recommendations about what brand or model pick-up I should get? I would like it to be a good price, as well as good quality. Thanks for any help you could offer!

Re: Need advice on pick-up and preamp for 12 string.

:
Marcus Berry makes an under bridge pickup that does a good job of reproducing the sound. I would get an "end pin jack" that replaces the strap button at the lower (south) bout of the guitar. There are several pre-amp units that plug into the jack and the cord plugs into the pre-amp. This would keep the guitar looking original and if you ever wanted to swap it in on another, you could remove the pickup, pre-amp, jack and leave no evidence of alterations to the eye. Then you could use them on the new one. The bridge will need to be cut down on the bottom to make room for the pickup, approx. 1/8th of an inch. If you swap it in later it will need to be replaced, but that is no big job to do.

Guitar or Cello?

I dont know which instrument to take up. ive posted a message on a cello discussion site. feedback on why guitar is the instrument 2 learn will be appreciated

Re: Guitar or Cello?

Go for the Cello, nothing looks cooler than one of those mothers slung around your neck, just a bigger version of the paul macartney bass, I know i shouldnt fall for this, but what did the Cello group advise?
(this has to be the best wind up yet)

Re: Guitar or Cello?

Well man, I love the guitar, and there is no doubting its diversity. But the fact that you are considering the cello must mean something. You do not say what kind of music you are into. Close your eyes and invent a tune in your head; does it suit bowing or plucking? There are squillions of guitar players out there. If you want to stand out, go the cello. Remember you can still use all kinds of effects and techniques. A cello/guitar duo works really well, as the cello can go as low as a bass guitar, but a lot higher, being tuned in fifths. You can pluck bass lines and still take moaning solos.
You can also tune a bass guitar like a cello if you choose the right guages, and this is a great second instrument for a cellist.
Whichever you choose, make the effort to get really great and you won't regret it.

Re: Guitar or Cello? CELLO ????? WHY ? ! ?

Are you influenced by Mozart or Led Zepplin ?? Do you wanna play classical??
I played Cello and Upright bass and found them to be difficult.So I switched to Tenor and Bass Trombone.I was very good !
But I grew up with Rock/Funk and Fusion.Guitar is more fun to me.

Re: Guitar or Cello? CELLO ????? WHY ? ! ?

yeah but a Cello is soooo cool, nothing impresses the chicks more than when you pull your big old boy out of the wardrobe, trombone sounds like a very loud fart on steroids, you cant woo her with that mother! how many guitars has she seen in her time?

Re: Guitar or Cello? CELLO ????? WHY ? ! ?

You can woo more chicks with a guitar! Plus,it's more portable.So,it won't matter if it's her place or mine.
Try playing chords on a cello.........

Re: Guitar or Cello? CELLO ????? WHY ? ! ?

i tried and it rocks!! have you ever tried miking up a cello and plugging it into a Marshal TSL100 with a 4x12 cab fitted with celestion greenbacks?? turn the everything up to 11 and boy does that mama rock!! i was playing chords and finger picking and all that shit!! you should hear my rendition of 'communication breakdown' so put your LP custom back in its case and get a cello.

Re: Guitar or Cello? CELLO ????? WHY ? ! ?

That sounds cool.But the cello is the reason why bought the LP in the first place...lol! Anyway,just cuz cello didn't work for me doesn't mean it wont work for the next guy.

Re: Guitar or Cello? CELLO ????? WHY ? ! ?

some people just dont get it, do they?

Re: Guitar or Cello? CELLO ????? WHY ? ! ?

Do some people get everything? Do you?

Once Upon a Time in Mexico Theme

This is the main theme from O'nce upon a time in Mexico'. It is taken from the title sequence as El Mariachi walks around dramatically playing his guitar... you know the one! Two guitars, although the second guitar doesnt come in until the middle section. The ending was made up to replace the horn section in the song. Have a go and tell me what you think: mr_claire@hotmail.com
